Wanting

Can we stop this wanting feeling

Calm my soul

And feed me lies

Sing me sweet

Lullabies

Drowning sorrow

In clear fear

It hurts my throat

This screaming cheer

Can we stop this wanting feeling

Lie down

And dream

Of soundless nights

And frenzied lights

Your skin is soft

Your breath is warm

Stop

Wanting
